Introduction to TinyMCE.

TinyMCE is a platform independent web based Javascript HTML WYSIWYG editor. What this means is that it will let you create html content on your web site. TinyMCE supports a lot of Operating Systems and browsers. Some examples are: Mozilla, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari and Chrome. TinyMCE has a large userbase and an active development community.

TinyMCE is the default visual editor starting from Plone 4.0, although Kupu is also available for users who prefer it. TinyMCE was decided to be shipped as default because Kupu wasn't being well-maintained, whereas TinyMCE had a much broader use in other communities, as well as a better plugin story and some other usability niceties as adding both internal and external links via the same button.
